The Popples was part of the 90-minute cartoon block Kideo TV, which also contained The Get-Along Gang, Ulysses 31, and Rainbow Brite. Based on a series of toys created by American Greeting Cards, these tiny, magical creatures had arms, legs, and heads that, when contracted, looked like little balls of fluff. Their name was derived from the popping sound made when the Popples sprang back to normal body size.

These cute, little, seemingly defenseless characters could actually handle themselves fairly well in a scrape. Equipped with pouches on their backs, the Popples were able to draw out any item necessary to ensure their survival in the human world. Only preteens Bonnie and Billy, whose attic the Popples occupied, knew of their existence.

Whenever the Popples needed more help than their gadgets could give, they asked for assistance from the tykes in the home audience. Soon, an animated child's hand would magically appear, successfully helping the Popples out of their mess.
